The Duchess of Cambridge is a classy and beautiful lady, she has been adored by the public since the very beginning of her joining the royal family. She deals with her public image with grace and still manages to protect her children and give them a sheltered and normal childhood. All this aside it is important to mention that she didn’t have an easy time while growing up and was bullied in school.
Before she met Prince William at college, while she was in high school she was bullied a lot and didn’t have a great time.
At the age of 14, she started a school named Downe House School. The school was in a village near Newbury, Berkshire. This was a school meant for girls only, ages between 11 and 18. Her experience at this school was not very good for her. From the very start she started getting bullied. One of Kate’s old classmate Jessica Hay said that “She was picked on because she was perfect, well turned-out and lovely.” It seems that other girls at the school didn’t like her positive attitude and sunny personality and decided to bring her down. And they managed to do it.
It got so bad that she was forced to change schools, she decided to transfer to Marlborough College, a mixed gender school, and it was Britain’s most expensive independent school. But unfortunately the previous school left a pretty bad mark and she was really stressed out and very emotional about everything that happened.
Fortunately the new school was a much better experience for the Duchess of Cambridge. Her old tutor, Joan Gall, said for the Daily Mail that, “When she arrived she was very quiet. Coming into a big school like Marlborough was difficult, but she settled in quickly. It was like a big, happy family. We would do things like bake cakes and watch videos.” Kate Middleton still has wonderful memories from this period of her life and she remembers them gladly. She enjoyed her time there so much, Middleton and Prince William are even thinking about their kids going there when they grow up.
